1. Used Auto Parts are just as good as new OEM Parts in many ways
Most of the time used auto parts will be exactly the same as a brand new part in fit and durability.  Take a used auto body part like a car door or fender.  If the car door is in good shape, it will fit exactly the same as the brand new one.  Once it is installed, it isn't any different in appearance or how long you can expect it to last.  The best part of this is...wait for it...the used auto part will cost 40%-50% less than the new one.  It also won't require you or your mechanic to swap over internal parts or panels.  This saves time and money as well.  Mechanical used auto parts like engines and transmissions will have some miles and wear, so in this regard, they're not as durable as a new engine or transmission.  But the fit will be exactly and brand new engines and transmissions aren't feasible because they're so expensive.  The other alternative would be a remanufactured engine or transmission, and these have a similar defect rate upon install as a used auto part.  We're happy to offer you a great deal on remanufactured engines and remanufactures transmissions in addition to the vast selection of used auto parts we carry.  All these parts can be delivered to Colorado Springs very quickly upon order.
